Hilo cottage description

Dear future guest, we are blocking out a few weeks in April to assure that our guest will have an odor free stay our cottage. We thought the situation was corrected once we installed new flooring and a new sink and counter-top but we were mistaken. Now we are gearing up to install new kitchen cabinetry. We are grateful for your understanding and look forward to a providing you with a pleasurable stay at our cottage.

The Hilo cottage is located directly across of the airport, in the heart of an established community. It is perfect for couples, friends or families traveling with children. Our affordable nightly rate includes all taxes and a minimal cleaning fee to encourage guests to spend their resources on experiences instead of accommodations. The house is supplied by county water that is clean and drinkable (no catchment systems) and located in an area with minimal Cocqui frog noise, within walking distance of restaurants, parks, and shopping.

We invite you to call our house your home while on vacation and become a part of the local community. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood our two bedroom-one bath cottage features a spacious living room to gather in and french doors that open up to a covered lanai where you can sit and enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening after a long day of sightseeing. We offer a full kitchen to prepare your favorite island breakfast or a meal on the go, a bathtub to clean up the kids, and LCD TV's in each room for a little down time, privacy and entertainment at the end of the day.

WiFi runs throughout the house. Ceiling fans and standing fans are located in each room (Sorry no AC available yet). Parking is located behind the house and an outdoor attachment contains a stackable washer/dryer for your convenience. This is a home and NOT a party house. Please no smoking, pets, and loud noise.

We are within close proximity to Banyan Drive, restaurants, the Airport, the University of Hawaii Colleges, the Prince Kuhio Shopping Plaza and an array of grocery stores. Other points of interest include:

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I work for the University of Hawaii and my husband oversees the local newspaper production. We both commute frequently between Hilo and Honolulu and when we aren't working we enjoy body surfing, hula, hiking, roller derby, and getting together with family and friends. Our family consists of four grown children, a friendly rottie, a poi dog, a hungry goat, a lazy tortoise, and a talkative cockatiel.

Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
We love our Leilani street plantation houses for their charm and proximity to all that Hilo has to offer.
